Listen to Hugh’s advice and Ignore Everybody

 |  June 14, 2011

A short book with many ideas packed in, I found cartoonist-blogger Hugh MacLeod’s “Ignore Everybody” to be inspiring and motivational, even though I wasn’t always able to relate to all the lessons. MacLeod encourages people to find their creativity by deciding what it is one believes in, then to pursue it full-force and risk everything, […]
